June 3rd 2002


Watching the birds from the window, and listening to the nest of blackbirds in the loft space, they have even been known to jump toward the ceiling to get to them. Winter when the log fire is in the fireplace. Root vegetables. Saturday and Sunday morning

Not enough stuff to scratch. The Hoover. Not enough hours in the day to sleep. Being brushed unless strictly on our terms.

Favorite Toy:
Rolled up peieces of paper. Bubba particularly likes toilet rolls. Anything that isn't nailed down !

Favorite Nap Spot:
Sofa / Bed. In front of the fire.

Favorite Food:
Dairylea triangles, Salmon (fried not poached) and chicken !

All three can open doors, climb curtains and Piper climbs down the curtain like a sailor climbing down a sail.


Arrival Story:
We lost our cat Stevie -Ray (Named after the blues guitarist Stevie-Ray Vaughan), he had tumors in his head, he was 21 years old when he had to have him put to sleep. We did not want anymore pets and then a friend of ours said she knew of some kittens did we want some. So we decided to have two to keep each other company, but I said to my husband before he went to pick them up if there is any left over bring them home, that is how we got Stripe (the big fluffy one) and we would not be out any of them ! Piper was named Piper cos on the way home he kept Piping up, Stripe - obvious really especially when he was a baby boy, Bubba was originally going to be called Bubble or Baby but we thought they were too girly, so we called him Bubba a bit more masculine and the name has associations with shrimps !

All from the same litter, brothers. Love water, cannot get enough of it ! Like to watch me (mum) having a bath. Would like to be outdoor cats but only during the summer months, so we are going to get a big house made for them to go into the garden.

Hello Playmates !

Surprise, surprise just in time for the weekend - it's raining ......
We don't mind cos we're house cats, and it is great fun watching the little birdies washing themselves in the puddle.

Mum and Dad are taking us to the vets tomorrow (Saturday) for our Annual Jabs, we have a really big cage to take us there (its actually a puppy pen, the other cages were all too small for all three of us and we don't like to be away from each other for too long!). We get fussed over by the vet nurse there, Anne, she has known us all since we were wee bits of fur and she is always surprised how much we have grown. Anne does my (Stripe the big fluffy one) grooming sometimes too, she gets the clippers out just to give me a trim as I like to lie in the litter tray.

We like to go in the car, good motion, but we don't tell Mum and Dad that, we make little peeping noises all the way there and all the way back, but we are always good for the vet. We get out annual check up too, so all our bits and pieces are fully checked out and the vet usually gets his stethoscope out to check our chests and breathing.

When we get home we get extra treats for being so good - so every cloud ....

Woke up this morning bright eyed and bushy tailed. The weather has much improved and there is a lot more to see out the window !
Mummy washed up our bowls and put some breakfast out, but I (Piper) did not feel like breakfasting with my brothers so I went and hid under the bed, this as it turns out what a good move. Not only did I get my very own breakfast session, but lots of cuddles from very concerned mum and dad, more cuddles than my brothers, Bubba and Stripe. I decided to come down for our second breakfast and braved the free for all that is meal time. Then I got into bed beside Stripe while Bubba flung himself around the room, chatting about something or other.

Anyway looking forward to mum and dad coming home - catch up with y'all soon.

Woke up late this morning (well honestly it is almost the weekend). Stripe was the first out of the door when it opened (typical Stripe - runs on everyready batteries). Mum and Dad were very tired so it took a while for them to sort out breakfast, but nonetheless it was yummy. Mum left the airing cupboard door open a bit so we all took it in turns to have a look inside, see what we could find and if there was any food or toys we could have.

Mum called us down for our second breakfast and shut the door so she and dad could go to work, we sat on the windowsill for a while while they were loading the car, looking as cute as we could (perhaps they might pop back in and we would get a third breakfast). No ......... car just left, we're going back to bed.

Lots of Love Piper, Bubba and Stripe xxx
